Class 2

Class 2 medical

The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority’s Class 2 medical clearance is less rigorous and mostly issued to private pilots, commercial balloon pilots and student pilots.

Even though you may not be flying commercially, the safety of yourself and others around you is still paramount.

A Class 2 clearance ensures that you are as medically safe as you can be, to avoid causing harm to yourself or others.
